All Archive supporters should understand that nearly all of the Republican Candidates for president with the exception of Ron Paul probably would support SOPA. If anyone values their Constitutional rights, specifically unfettered access to the Internet, they should think about this when they Vote in the South Carolina Primary and the remaining primaries to be held this year. This will be a pivotal election year for many Constitutional rights issues including Internet rights.

That's funny b/c one of my own Senators, Mr. Lieberman is a co-sponsor of PIPA. And yes, he is an Independent. Who caucuses with the Democrats.

And another bright shinning star from my state, disgraced Sen. Chris Dodd is leading the fight for PIPA's passage as chairman and CEO of the Motion Picture Association of America. Oh yeah, he is a Democrat too.

I think there is only one party color in Washington. Green.

If you can stomach this, more from the ex-Senator.

Micah,

Just watched the Republican debate and every one of them came out against SOPA. What a change a few days can make. Santorum said he was against it but was blabbering about protecting the movie industry. Apparently all of the pressure from the Internet campaign had a significant effect on their temporary thought processes.

Unfortunately many Democrats in southern California helped draft it, Hollywood, the entertainment industry will keep trying until it inevitably succeeds just as they have with perpetual copyright extensions. Northern California, where Wikipedia and Internet Archive are located, is in the opposite camp, it's an interesting culture war north and south.

The democrats would never do that, they are the voice of the middle class and the little man.... they would never be segregationist, confederate slave owners, or klansman either... oh wait... they were all three.... oops!

Well not to take sides (I'm personally a Democrat), just saying on this particular issue, a few Democrats in southern California helped sponsor the bill, because they were brought into office with the support of Hollywood businesses, but most Democrats, including Obama, do not support the bill, while many Republicans support the bill. It's not a black and white Dem/Rep, it's moneyed special interests vs. common people.

Obama veto'd it right? I can't imagine he would flip-flop on the issue. I think (so far) that Ron Paul gets my vote

You would probably be interested in the following pamphlet from Alabama

http://www.archive.org/details/AlabamaDemocracyUnitedDemocracyAndPartyHarmonyVs.HeflinRepublicanism

It has that Rooster logo and much more.

As for SOPA, it is bi-partisan, being introduced by John Conyers D-MD, and co-sponsered by Repubs such as Peter King and John Carter but, as garthus said, opposed by Paul.

Dudeman,

Where did you find that piece, it is interesting to see what the Democratic party stood for in the past.

University library.

BTW -- I should correct myself, it was Lamar Smith R-TX, who introduced SOPA, not Conyers
